The garden is winding down and dead flower stalks need cutting. But some things are still blooming, like the sunflowers, butterfly bush and nasturtiums. I think a conversation my nephews had about it while they were over here sums it up nicely:
Younger nephew: Why do they have that fountain in the garden?
Older nephew: It makes it look not so pitiful.
Younger nephew: It's not so pitiful!
Nasturtiums and hydrangea The wild areas are just as pretty, no, maybe prettier, with their fall colors.
